Dr Zhan Yuin Ong
My research focuses on the design and development of well-defined and biocompatible nanomaterials for healthcare applications. By adopting a highly interdisciplinary approach, combining aspects of physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, and medicine, we hope to formulate nanoparticle-mediated solutions to address unmet needs in medicine. To this end, the laboratory is developing novel strategies to obtain well-characterised multifunctional inorganic nanoparticles and inorganic-organic hybrid nanomaterials, and evaluating their safety and efficacy for targeted drug delivery and photothermal therapy in cancer and infectious disease applications.
